Butterfly Mother's Day

Just a little bit of explanation on this card. Crafty Cardmakers challenge is Tricolour-Using the colour wheel. This means we have to use Triatic, Split Complimentary, or Analogous. Uh Oh, big words, have to use the dictionary because I haven't gotten this technical with color since college. I usually just wing it. I won't make you guess, I used Analogous(blue, green, purple). It worked out great because I have been wanting to use this set of stamps and now I'm ready with a Mother's Day card to boot. The other challenges are pretty self-explanatory.
8 Challenges:
Supplies: Green 5 1/2" square card blank, Papers: Stampin Up, CTMH, Stamps: CTMH-D1261 Simple Beauty, Stampin Up-Charming, Ink: Stampin Up-old olive, CTMH-Z2161 Petal, Z2160 Twilight, CTMH markers-pansy purple, hydrangea, petal, twilight, dutch blue, garden green, Stampin Up markers-Blender pen, rich razzleberry, EK Success-sm. corner rounder, Michael's-pearl dot stickers, ribbon-Offray, Fiskars Shape Cutter template-Circles-1, Super Size Circles templates, pop dots.

Thanks for viewing,

This is so bonny! Pretty colours and I love the butterfly. I think this year mothers day falls just before Easter - though I've not actually checked this so don't quote me lol! If its not soon I always run the risk of forgetting about it once I've made the cards. Might therefore end up in my mum's bad books!!
